, whether it is mr. bush, mr. cheney, anyone who served in war would've known right off the bat or should have known these guys never served in war and we got the outcome that we did. host: you served in the first gulf war? correct. caller: there were two different strategies. the first, the iraqi invasion of kuwait. a country about the size of new jersey. over 700,000 troops to kick them out of the country. 500,000 of those troops were coalition troops. you are talking a whole different ballgame when you are talking about removing an army from a country as opposed to invading and occupying. those are two different kettles of fish. host: veteran from ohio. brenda in memphis, tennessee. i make aes, may comment first? . am a former u.s. marine i was a staff sergeant during the vietnam era. i want to say this much. they are talking about us going when our country is struggling. they want to cut support on social security. if you look at the ryan budget, it is a budget that is totally on steroids against the poor. i don't understand why we don't rebel -- now, let's talk about iraq. iraqi is a
's talking points memo. it was 10 years ago that president bush launched an attack on iraq. >> operation iraqi freedom has begun and the pentagon says saddam hussein's days are numbered. i'm shepard smith. this is the fox report on fox news channel and tonight on fox stations from coast to coast. bombs and crews mistles rained down on baghdad for a second night in a row. and saddam's main presidential palace taking a direct hit. saddamecess saddam hussein's family home got hit as well. >> bill: that marked eight long years of conflict in iraq. almost 4500 americans dead. more than 32,000 wounded. almost a trillion dollars spent. was it worth it? many liberals say no. some conservatives say yes. the "wall street journal" today supporting the war in iraq on its editorial page. of course, the "new york times" thinks it was foolish. no matter what you think. the iraq war has changed america. we now have a 17 trillion-dollar debt. and obviously iraq contributed to that we also have thousands of wounded warriors. the country must take care of. and we have an ideological battle over how to deal
were lost today. more on where iraq stance 10 years on, i spoke a short time ago with president bush's envoy to iraq directly following the 2003 invasion. thanks very much for coming in. how will history look back on this war? >> it is, in a way, too early to ask. obviously, in 10 years, everybody says we need to have the answer, but i do not think we have it yet because it is a mixed record. there is good stuff and bad news. you have to find a balance, and it will take awhile. >> what could america have done to make it less of a mixed record and more of a good record? >> i have said all along that the transition from dictatorship to democracy is hard. it takes time, and the key factor is security. we did not provide adequate security really until bush ordered the surge in 2007. when you do not have security in the post-conflict situation, you are going to have a real problem. you have simply got to provide security, and we did not do it at the outset, and i think that had an impact on everybody. >> you are in a position where i think you were called the vice whatever at -- sardonica

republican president since nixon. george is h.w. bush didn't go. on his trip today, he planted a tree. he also signed a guest book. there were plenty of photo ops. this was the big wuchlt see that big box thing that looks like it's on the back of a truck there. the president visiting the israeli air defense system that has a name that sounds like it comes out of a come iblg book. the iron dome. a big iron dome fly swater paid for in part by the united states. and that's where our domestic politics intruded on today's presidenttial trip abroad. we are still trying to wrap our heads around the self inflicted unnecessary designed to be dumb budget cuts. the sequester. and yes, those cuts include the funding for the iron dome. at his press conference today with his israely counter part, the president oohed and aued. >> we're providing more security security assistance and advanced technology to israel than ever before. and that includes more support for the missile defenses like iron dome. we will take steps to ensure that there is no interruption of funding for iron dome. >> taking steps to
back to july 2007 as president bush reopened the refurbished white house briefing room and had this to say about the white house press corps. [video clip] why don't you all yell simultaneously? [laughter] really loudly. that way, you might get noticed. i will listen, internalize, play like i will answer the question, and then smile as you and say thanks. sound for such a solid, question. i will cut the ribbon. and then you yell. i cogitate. then i smile and wave. [laughter] bill plante. guest: he had a painful moment. he was getting at something that -- he had a playful moment, but he was getting as something that was true. they all try to get the attention of the president. he can choose to call on someone or choose not to answer. it is in his hands. that used to be the norm for news conferences. somewhere around the reagan era , it got some dates. people waited to be called on. -- it got very sedate. list already has a prepared of the reporters on whom he is going to call. it is hard to get recognized. president reagan once recognized a venerable reporter from texas, a woman
. this is where america is. i think what jeb bush, the clip you showed of jeb bush, shows what the dramatic problem is for the republican party. they can't be a party of intolerance when it comes to gay marriage, when it comes to immigration, when it comes to whether you believe in climate change or not. >> well, let me ask you both this quickly. my theory in some ways, it's sort of like gun control was in the '90s for democrats, which is there is -- there are plenty of people in the base of the democratic party who still believe gun control, but the leaders of the party did not talk aggressively about it. so there's going to be a part of the republican base in this december nbc "wall street journal" poll. 27% of republicans broadly favor it. so i don't want to oversell it. 27% favor same-sex marriage. there is going to be a part of your party, alex, that doesn't -- does not want to change principles. should your leadership, people running for president, should they, a., say, look, i support same-sex marriage. fact you can disagree. or should they not talk as much about it? >> i think i per

. bush's administration. let's debate that, bring in alan colmes, the host of the alan colmes show and ben ferguson, the most of the ben ferguson show. >> hi. >> alisyn: alan, what do you think of that premise. did candidate obama said he would help to elevate our status internationally after what he believed president bush had done and that our stature was no longer as high. do you think president obama has accomplished that? >> i do and i spent time looking at the polls and our standing worldwide and particularly in the muslim world is a little higher than at the end of the bush administration. one of the problems we have is the anti-islamic video that came out about a year ago and hurt us in pakistan and hurt us in many parts of the middle east and we also were hurt in pakistan by doing something which most of us applauded, going in and getting bin laden. so there are certain things that work it our advantage that in fact may have hurt us and certain things like the anti-islamic video which unfortunately should never have taken place. >> alisyn: okay. >> hurt our standing as wel

. are going to make george bush the president of the republic now for quite a while, and we will continue that. e really only have 1 1/2 political parties in the country now. there is a misreading of the republican party in terms of what the problems were. the fact of the matter is republican party is the dominant political party from but the party5, ran out of gas in the summer of 2005, the effects of the war, katrina, people say, what is wrong with the republicans? they have had seven or eight years now where republicans are roaming around in terms of their future, and they are not closer now than they were then. the political parties cannot fix the problem of a party, but they have to avoid becoming a liability. the job of the political party is to make a flat playing field, so the future of either party will determine who the nominee is and the next president is. until republicans take the white house back, they will be defined as a congressional party, the tea party, great for us, and whoever is the craziest person gets on tv and gets the attention -- that will not change for the next thr

, this is -- part of her problem was also that she is old news in the sense that clintons and bushes alike, just ask jeb bush, these are names that people have been talking about for over 20 years. and there's a real sense out there on both sides of the aisle that it's time for a change. i also think, look, historically the idea that a presidential, that a party can hold on to the white house for three terms in a row is very, very rare, it's very difficult, and the idea that hillary clinton is the woman who can do that i find a little unlikely. i don't think barack obama's popularity transfers to her. if you watch that "60 minutes" interview with hillary clinton and barack obama, you could see why barack obama is more popular than hillary clinton as a politician, because he's a much more dynamic and engaging personality, and hillary just did not seem like she was a particularly interesting person or exciting person to listen to or follow. jon: "the washington post" is out with a poll on gay marriage that is kind of an outlier. the fox news poll and other polls taken til now have said the country is

an example. you remember when the bush tax cuts first came out and daschle, tom daschle and dick gephardt, they were the minority leaders. they didn't even have, they didn't have anything. they didn't have the house, they didn't have the senate, they didn't have the white house. yet they came out with this ridiculous show for the press with visual aids. they had to meet the press outside because they had a big, brand new lexus, and they had a rusty muffler. see, that's what he's going to get -- the rich guy, that is -- this is all you're getting, and basically they said there's nothing in it for you if you're middle class and poor. he's only doing this for the rich. well, we know that's not true, but most people bought it. in fact, to this day most people, i mean, most republicans i talk to, it's unbelievable. you know? i mean, forget about the truth, it's the perception of the truth. and, you know, it's amazing, i mean, you know, terms like gridlock, it came from them, you know? i mean, like they said the last congress was the worst congress ever because they got less done. not quality,

was unconscionable what bush had done but enough it's fine and we don't have a problem. this democratic budget presented by the house is a joke. the thought of increasing stimulus spending 2.200 billion. solyndra wasn't have no. the -- it is this government's notion that we want to constrain economic growth by continuing to grow the size and scope of the federal government. this would not even balance the budget until something like 2045, and even then wouldn't do it in ten years we would be spending 70% of gdp on public debt. >> neil: i'm going to give the benefit of the doubt to people who can't understand money. money in and my out. that's fine. and we don't have a great spending problem. so, status quo. but we're adding more spending. we're looking at $200 million more among house democrats, $100 million among senate democrats, as if this problem doesn't exist. then we're saying, clearly emboldened by leadership to say, balancing the budget in ten years, it's not the end all be all. >> here's where we might part company. i don't see where republicans doing anything to stop that when you ha

. this is interesting for a variety of reasons. first of all, in 2004 when he was the architect for george w. bush, you know, legend has it that rove tried to drive a wedge issue on the issue of same-sex marriage of course coming out against it at that point. now he says the republicans could actually have a candidate who supports it, though, let's put the question to connie mack mary bono mack what do you think? possible? >> well i certainly this issue -- i said this weekend to some friends that it's not a matter of if, it's a matter of when and how. and i think really we're starting to see the debate more about definition. so when you talk about marriage, marriage is a religious institution that i think we ought to protect. and marriage should be between one man and one woman. but i also believe that we ought to afford the same rights and privileges to people who love each other and want to have a family with each other. they ought to be allowed to do that and get all the same rights. >> in california we've had prop 8 which started, people didn't know could they or couldn't they marry their loved one
budgets and the one that george bush inherited from bill clinton. in each case taxes as a percentage of the total economy were over 20%. in this republican fantasy land budgets are balanced with revenues at 19% of the economy, yet meeting the needs of 78 million more seniors and a infrastructure deficit that is growing as america is falling apart. clearly this is not remotely possible if we are going to enjoy anything like our current quality of life. there is a real world intersection of budget saving opportunities with potential areas of agreement. health care reform is one. but not just by shifting the burden to seniors and disabled as the republicans propose in their fantasy budget. my home state of oregon is the middle of an exciting demonstration of how to squeeze out the waste we all know is there and realign incentives. instead of the empty ritual of pretending to repeal obamacare, let's work together to accelerate reform for all americans. if the oregon experiment works, and frankly many of these efeshencies by the way are already achieved in other parts of the country and w
